words, one big, vast cost-saving measure. a politician in britain tonight said, it's a smoke screen. if it is, then once again, the murdoches have played their hand extremely well. >> you talk about a smoke screen and the politicians there. politicians are on the run from this, aren't they? some of them in the past have been very fond of having murdoch publications endorse them, get behind them. now they're trying to say, we've had nothing to do with the man behind the curtain. >> yes, and you see, the thing is that parties from both sides, the labor party, for example, the socialist labor party could never have got elected, perhaps, originally, if the "sun" newspaper, the murdoch staple, hadn't supported them. they always needed them, david cameron, needed the "sun" to come back on to his hands. david come cameron is close friends with rebecca brooks, the editor during this scandal, and is now the top executive. what hugh grant said to me yesterday, basically, the actor, is, it stinks. the stench of collusion between government, politics, media is so entrenched here that one this n
's a big question. they clearly can't have an opening in the treasury secretary's post right now. so it would leave the white house and the administration in a lurch if he were to, you know, really plan an exit without a clear succession plan. but treasury secretary geithner is clearly exhausted. >> but that is exactly why it stee seems to me so odd. it sounds like what people are expecting out of this white house when it comes to economics these days, so maybe it's just par for the course. jeff, does it strike you as just kind of bad politics, bad timing? what's your take on this? >> i don't think anyone in the world cares much who's the treasury secretary. people care that the economy is not recovering, and he is the leading representative of it other than the president himself. things were getting better in may. they stopped getting better. this is a problem in substance, and it's a problem politically. shuffling around the boxes doesn't matter, but the lack of a sense that anything is getting better or there's a plan to get things better is a big, big problem. >> jeff, there's ab
has to do that for us. so it is going to be a big change for some folks. >> stillson always dreamed of being a launch director. no woman has ever held that job. but for now, nasa has nothing for her to launch. back on board -- >> let's go take a look at the air look. >> sure, we'll take a look in the air lock. crawl about 12 feet. i'm going to drag these cables in, too. on the other end is the shuttle's cargo bay, spacious enough to hold a school bus. over the 39 flights of "discovery," dozens of astronauts in spacesuits have been at this exact vantage point waiting to step out to repair a satellite or build the space station. >> grab the hand hold here and then just keep coming, put a hand up here, and can you pull yourself right on up. >> we're climbing the ladder to the flight deck. in the weightlessness of space you'd just float your way up. i'm allowed the privilege of the commander's seat. there's a lot of buttons here. i guess i shouldn't touch. >> john, here we are on the flight deck of "discovery." the commander sits in the left seat. >> right. >> the pilot sits in the righ
't he go back stronger. >> reporter: let's not mix a lot of different things into one big pot. the poll you referred to was a poll that was done the day after dominique strauss-kahn's arrest. it was a poll that was faultily done. it was declared illegal and done as people were still trying to adjust and absorb the reality that one of the most powerful men in the world who could have been president could have committed such a crime as he was about to announce his nomination. so, i disregard the importance of that poll that said early on that a majority of the french thought that he might have been the victim of a plot. as for france having different sexual morays, seduction is not criminality, seduction is playful, should be enjoyable. committing a violent crime against a woman which was what was alleged to have happened is appalling for any french person. and so one has to make that distinction. what is the bridge between seduction and a violent crime is the potential abuse of power which is -- which is also something that is endemic in french life. >> you make a point that's what's eve
